John Thomson, was born in the north of Wales, in 
the year 1616. It is said his father died shortly after his 
birth, and his mother married again. The name of the 
step-father is concealed from the memory of man, behind 
that impenetrable veil of oblivion, which time b spreading 
over the generations of man. The legal parents became 
the protectors of the child. He went where they went, and 
received his scanty education from their lips. 

He came to this country in the third embarcation from 
England. The second, which arrived at Plymouth, was 
Capt. Robert Cushman, in the Fortune, bringing thirty-five 
families, the remainder of Robinson's society. Nor. 11th, 
162t. The third arrival was two vessels, containing sisLty 
or seventy men, some of them had families, under the 
patronage of Thomas Weston, a merchant of distinction, 
in Iiondon. Among this number, was the subject of this 
treatise. They landed at Plymouth early in the month of 
May, 1622. John Thomson was then in the siith yeat 
of his age. 

Whether originally all, who bear the orthoepy of the 
family name, wer€ of the same family, cannot now easily 
be ascertained. The first knowledge we ^ave of the name 
with any certainty, is from the ancient record of heraldry, 

Digitized byV^OOQlC- 

when aristocracy ioTented a badge, to distinguish th« 
royal degrees of family ^eatoess* Tfic^ the name was 
familiarly koowD in England, Scotland and Ireland. They 
each spelt the name differently, and were oofisidered as 
distinct families. They each selected a diffei'ent badge 
of heraldry. 

Those in the southwestern part of England spelt their 
name Tompson. There was one descended from this 
family, settled in the ministry at Berwick, on the Piscata- 
qua river, Re.v. John Tompson. Those in Ireland, spelt 
their name Thompson. Those in the south of Scotland, 
spelt their name Thomson. Of this family were the cele- 
brated poet James Thomson, and Charles Thomson, the 
Secretary of the Continental Congress, in revolutionary 
days. The north of W^ales being contiguous to Scotland, 
we are led to consider the subject of our inquiry a de- 
scendant of the Scottish family, and not of the Irish. 

The circumstance of his youth, when he arrived in 
this country, and the limited means of education which 
he had, would lead us to conclude, he did not know his 
lineage. This conclusion is strengthened from the cir- 
cumstance, the signature to his will is spelt Tomson. 
This may^not be viewed strange or unaccountable, when 
we bear on our minds, the vast number of pers<in's in Eu- 
rope, who then and even now, have no specific knowl- 
edge of their grand parents. Even in our own country, 
with all the means of education and records, cases may 
easily be found, where a person could not tell from what 
nation in Europe his progenitor descended. We natur- 
ally look amongst the best informed in that day for cor- 
rect information. In his deed of Spring-liill, his name is 
spelt Thomson. Rev. John Cotton, the first minister ta 

Digitized by V^OOQIC 

Halifax, spelt his name in this way ; and the records of 
the town of Mendon, spell the name in the same manner. 
The letter p was not introduced into the name by any of 
his descendants, till a century and a half had rolled 

Tradition is silent respecting any incident in his life, till 
he arrived to manhood. Then it presents him to us in 
many events interesting and entertaining. It appears 
from his will, he was a carpenter. Besides building 
houses for others, he built one for himself in each of the 
places he selected as a settlement, and one for each of his 
sons, John and Jacob, in the latter place. Tradition says 
he built the first framed Meeting-house in Plymouth, and 
as a compensation for his labor, the town gave him a deed 
of a piece of land, from the Market-house, back, extend- 
ing to the herring-brook, now called Spring-hill. 

He married xMar3cCook, the second daughter of Fran- 
cis Cook, who was one of the first adventurers in 1620. 

John Thomson makes his first appearance as a farmer, 
at Sandwich. He purchased in that part of the town called 
Nobscusset, where he lived a few years. He thought he 
could better his fortune for himself and children, by mov- 
ing into the more interior part of the country. He accor- 
dingly selected a place, thirteen miles west of Plymouth, 
on the confines of Bridgewater, Middleborough, and what 
wa« then called Plymouth, now Halifax. Here he built a 
log house in Middleborough, about twenty rods west of the 
Plymouth line, where he lived till the house was burnt by 
the Indians. 

His settlement amidst a surrounding savage enemy, 
must have been attended with many troubles and fearful 
ipprehen»ion«. He must have felt the need of all the 

Digitized by VjOOQIC 


confidence in God that religbn couid aiibrd, wbich 
brought our fathers into this country. He ielt the neces- 
sity of using every precaution which his ingenuity could 
suggest, or his wisdom dictate. Orni tradition has handed 
down to us a few incidents illustrative of this remark. 

There was at that day, a stream of water near the west 
side of the house, where fish resorted, but the hand of 
improvement has caused it to become dry for a considera- 
ble distance — and even then nothing hut a rill. One mor- 
ning, he had caught some fish, his wife had them over the 
fire cooking ; two Indians came into the house in a very 
morose manner ; one of the Indians went to the pot and 
pulled out one of the fish by the tail, upon which she re- 
proved him very sharply — the other Indian then drew his 
knife and brandished it at her in a threatening manner — 
she immediately seized the splinted broom, and heroically 
drove them out of the house. Their behavior was such, 
it excited a fearful alarm in her mind. This she related 
to her husband when he came in, which led them to go 
that night to the garrison at Middleborough, a distance of 
seven miles. After peace was concluded they returned 
to their farm. There is another instance related* worthy 
of notice. Three Squaws came to the house one after- 
noon, and were exceedingly friendly — they were very oflS- 
cious^n proffered assistance and varied acts of kindness ; 
they went with her into the garden, and cheerfully assist- 
ed in picking beans for the next day's repast. This singu- 
'lar benavior she related to her husband on his return — he 
replied, '< we must instantly pack up our things, and go 
to the garrison." 

There is an oral anecdote of a policy which he adapted 
for his preservation firom Indian suifrise. He agreed

in their overtures^^the Indian ^ame and lived with ieach 
ol them alternately, two week®. They studied to please 
him by flattery, and in every little eompetitioo of strength 
or agility, by giving him the advantage, or yi*^lding to his 
superiority. When the Indians agreed to make war on 
their white neighbors, this young Indian wonld secretly 
steal away and join them — his absence became aWAiHing 
immediateiy to repair to the garrison. When ^hey had 
made peace with the English, this young Indian would 
return and live with them ; in this management be igno- 
rantly became their protactor. One day, while this young 
Indian was at work with our ancestor, he <rfwerved to 
the Indian, ** I wonder they never attempted to kill me." 
•• MastCT," said the Indian, ** I have cocked my gun 
many a time to shoot you, but I loved you so well, I could 


At another time, on a Sabbath morning, wfeile his wife 
and children had rode to meeting, several Indians came 
into his house, in a turbulent manner ; he was appr^en- 
aive his life was in danger— he took his seat in the corwer 
of the room, with his noted gun in his lap-4his so tenriii^ 
«d these cowardly intruders, they soon left the house. 
Their behavior within and without was such, he was con- 
vinced all was not right. He butied his money, and hid bis 
most valuable things in the most secluded places. Whe« 
bis family returned from meeting, they F^Pf^ed to goto

On hb way to the garrison, be passed by the ^ettiemeat 
of a Mr. DaQson, in Middleborougb, bat he coRclnded 
not to go till early in the morning; he had rode but a 
short distance in the mornings when he stopped his horse 
to drink, this gave the Indians an opportunity, and they 
shot hifli. Tl^ rill where he was shot, is called Danson's 
brook. The next day, our ancestor sent his son John, 
with two others from the garrison, to the deserted farm, 
to take oare of any thing worth saving ; in passing the hol- 
low between the fort and where the Congregattonal Meeting 
House ilbw stands, he discovered in the horse-path, apair 
of leather shoes, and at a short distance farther a beaver 
hat, which belonged to Danson. He considered theni a 
decoy, and put his horse in full speed; when they return- 
ed neither of them were there. 

The people^ who were capable of bearing arms, met and 
chose our ancester their commander. He formed his men 
in. a solid square, and there were four men in front, and 
four men deep. He applied to the Governor and Council 
at Plymouth for a commission ; but they considered the 
company so small, gave him a general commission as Lieu- 
tenant commandant, not only of the field, but of the gar- 
rison, and all posts of danger. Thus commissioned, he 
equipped himself and company with a gun, a brass pistol, a 
sword and a halbert. The gun is supposed to have been 
brought into this country with them. It is of the follow- 
ing description : The whole length of the stock and bar- 
rel, seven feet, four and a half Inches; the length of the 
barrel, six feet one inch and a half; the size of the cali- 
bre will carry twelve balls to the pound ; the length of the 
face of the lock ten inches ; the whole weight of the gun»

iwentj poands, twel? e oimces. The wh^ length of the 
Bword three feet, five and a iialf inches ; the length of the 
blade from the guard, two feet, eleven inches and three- 
eighths. Iludebras has very accurately described this 

'^For want of use it has grown rusty, 
And ate into the blade for lack 

Of something for to hew and hack.'' 

These two have descended to Capt. Zadock Thomson, 
of Halifax; Capt. Jabez P. Thomson has the hrass pistol; 
Capt. Asa Thomson has the halbert; the top part of the 
halbert is broken off— the present st^ is evidently not 
original. . On the face of it is cut the date of the year 
when made, 1623, 

At the commencement of Philip's war, in 1675, the In- 
dians becanie so morose, the people in the mouth of June, 
fled for safety to the fort, which was built near what is 
caUed the Four Corners in Middleborough. The Indians 
would daily appear on the southeasterly side of the river, 
and ascend what is called the hand-rock, because there 
was the impression of a man's hand indented on it. 
There they would be in fair sight of the fort. Here the 
Indians would present the seat of hqnor to the people in 
the fort, and in an insulting manner would slap their hand 
on it. This they did for several days; there were thirty- 
five famUies in the fort, being all who had settled within 
the town. The people became tired of such daily insults; 
Lieut. Thomson ordered Isaac Howland, a distinguished 
marksman, to take his gun and shoot the Indian in the 
attitude of insulting them ; this he did, by elevating his 
gun, and ffave the Indian a mortal wound in that honora- 
ble part of the body presented to the fort in an in&ulting

manner; Filted with T^venge ft>r their WoCinded compati- 
ion, the i»di&ns immedrat^ly^ toek to the woodd ; rtinnltig 
down the hili to the mill jast below the fort, where the 
miller was at work — the miller discov4sted themeoming, 
seized his coat and fled ; he placed his coat on the end of 
a stick, as he run throag^h the brush to the fort : held the 
coat over his head, and suffice it to say, the coat was per- 
forated with several balls, before he could arrive at the 
fort ; they then burnt the mill. The Indians dragged 
their wounded companion two miles and diree-qtiarters, to 
the deserted hou^of William Nelson, on the farm now 
owned by Major "whomas Bennet. The Indian died that 
night, his companions then buried him with their accus- 
tomed ceremonies, and burnt the house. In the year 
1821, nearly one hundred and fifly years afler the Indian 
had been buried. Major Bennet improved this spot of land, 
and ploughing the same, he disinterred some of his bones, 
a pipe, a stone jug, and a knife, all very much decayed, 
under the slow but all-devouring hand of time. Major 
Bennet actuated by a laudable design, went a few years 
past, and measured the distance from the old fort to the 
rock where the Indian was, and made the astonishing dis- 
tance of 155 rods ; nearly halt a mile. 

In the year 1677, John Thomson built a frame house 
' near the same spot where the former house was burnt, and 
made a garrison of it. He cased all the outer posts, faced 
the joists to the inner side of the sills, -und laid brick 
in mortar on the sills to the beams, and leaving a small 
window on each side to each room. This house occasion^ 
ally underwent various repairs, and was the residence of 
the Mh generation. It was taken down in 1838, having 
been inhabited 160 y«ars.

As yet we have &m\j viewed the toei^ktuts of bis U(e in 
relatioo to hb woiidty ooneerns. We ougirt not to i>as8 
in silence, the great objeei which led him to come into 
this coORtry. His mcn-aJ and religious character conlains 
useful iostrttction to his desoeiidaifts, and in many respects 
sharply reprove them for their degeneracy. His custom- 
ary hour of rising in the morning was at 4 o'clock, espec- 
ially on the Sabhath morning. The breakfast repast 
must be closed, even in summer, on or before the rising 
sun. He was a regular atten^nt on the duties of the 
sanctuary, and by bis example be showjed that he felt the 
sacredness of liberty of conscience, and was determined 
to improve it, as a precious gift of God. After he had 
made his clearing and moved into his log house, either he 
or his wife would go every Sabbath to Plymouth, the only 
place where they had an Elder to speak to them, a distance 
of more than thirteen miles. We have orally received in- 
formatbn, that his uiie, one year» on two of the Sabbaths 
in June, after breakfast took a cl^iJd six months old in her 
arms, and walked to Plymouth, attended meeting, and re- 
turned home the same day.* 

Nor were his children to the third generation less zeal- 
ous of enjoying the happiness of sanctuary privileges. It 
was a common practice among them to make a cheese on 
Sabbath morning, in the summer, provided they could get 
it under the press before^ the sun arose, and then they 
would prepare to goto meeting. His grand children were 
regttlarly found aipong the worshiping assembly, on the 
Sabbath. It is stated, the cfaihireii of Jacob, his son, 
started one 8abbatb morning for Plymouth, they had to 
cross a dismal swamp, which iay between i^ess^JUnasa

light, and were greatly frightened by the numerous howU 
ings of the wolves^^tbey climbed a large rock which was 
near Amasa Sturtevant's, and there tarried in iearful sus- 
pense till the sun arose. 

CoDvpare their zealous attachment to religious worship 
with those of the present day, and we should little sue- 
pect we were the children of such an ancestor. We cer- 
tainly do not honor bis character, cr feel zealous to assim- 
ilate his piety. We feel it a burden to walk two miles to 
meeting instead of thirteen. 

He closed his industrious- and useful life, June 16th, 
1696, nearly eighty years old. He was buried in the first 
burying ground in Middleborough. His grave remains 
undistinguished from others, except a very small stone, 
which is said to be the second stone erected. Mary, his 
wife died March 21, 1714, in the eighty-eighth year of her 
age. Here he and his wife have silently laid nearly' a 
century and a half. It would be an honorable act, which 
posterity might view with pleasing emotion, if some of his 
descendants, in token of respect, should erect a monu- 
ment over his resting place.

their clothing and exposure to the severity of the weather, 
is' a subject for the consideration of the philosopher.
